Robertson was waived with a non-football injury designation, a specification that results from Robertson’s involvement in a shooting earlier this month. The 22-year-old was shot twice in the leg during an incident in which he was a “bystander,” according to Robertson’s agent, and although the police did question the undrafted rookie free agent, he was never charged with any crime and there’s been no indication that an investigation is ongoing.

Krause, meanwhile, has a little more NFL experience than does Robertson, as the pass-catcher appeared in two games with the Eagles last season, catching two passes for 11 yards. Krause, 24, went undrafted out of Vanderbilt in 2014, and has also spent time with the Browns and Patriots organizations. He was waived yesterday when Philadelphia signed rookie linebacker Don Cherry.
